Leave the 99

March Growth Group Series

Learn to share your faith

At Sturgis Missionary Church, we believe evangelism is a task given to every follower of Jesus. Do you ever feel like you struggle with evangelism, or don't even know where to start? Then the Leave the 99 series is for you.


Leave the 99 is a series of growth groups on Sunday mornings (9:15am) and Wednesday nights (6:00 pm) for the month of March. Breakfast (9am) and Dinner (5:30pm) will be provided for each. Children's programming will be available.


Classes will cover the following evangelistic styles:


  • Worship: Use everyday circumstances to speak positively about God or what you have learned from the Bible
  • Intellect: Use doctrine and logic to communicate your faith
  • Transfer: Divert a general conversation to something spiritual
  • Neighbor: Easily make friends and focus your attention on them
  • Engage: Easily start conversations with people you do not know
  • Share: Know the key principles of a good testimony and how to share yours in a beneficial way - short, precise and focusing on life after salvation.
  • Solicit: Creatively invite acquaintances to special events 


Leave the 99 will focus on how our church body can use our strengths to remove barriers that would keep us from sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. After attending the classes, you will feel empowered to evangelize in a way that fits your unique personality and gifts. Our evangelistic efforts will not hinge on certain events, but rather everyday life and everyday people.


Your family won't want to miss the Leave the 99 series this March!
